The achievement and preservation of an adequate amount of soft tissue around implants is a critical factor for the prognosis of the treatment.
To evaluate the effectiveness of a porcine dermal matrix applied during second stage implant surgery for horizontal soft tissue augmentation and preservation of dimensional stability.
Materials and Methods
Twenty patients (mean age 50...
The aim of the present publication was to report on the EAO Workshop group‐4 discussions and consensus statements on the five reviews previously prepared. These reviews provided the scientific evidence on the effect of crown‐to‐implant ratio, on reconstructions with cantilevers in fully and partially edentulous patients, on biological and technical complications of tilted in comparison...
To evaluate the non‐inferiority of the adjunct of a xenogeneic collagen matrix (CMX) or connective tissue graft (CTG) to coronally advanced flaps (CAF) for coverage of multiple adjacent recessions and compare superiority in patient‐reported outcomes (PROM).
Material and methods
One hundred and eighty‐seven subjects (92 CMX) with 485 recessions in 14 centres were randomized and followed up for...
The treatment of severely atrophied and edentulous jaws by means of fixed implant supported solutions is a challenging procedure.
The immediate loading of four to six axial and tilted implants offers the possibility to overcome elaborate hard tissue augmentation procedures but lacks implant and patient related data on implant survival rates.
Materials and Methods
ObjectivesThe aim of this randomized controlled clinical study was to assess soft tissue contour changes after different alveolar ridge preservation procedures.
Material and MethodsFollowing tooth extraction, 30 patients were randomly assigned to the following treatments (Tx) ‐ Tx 1: xenogenic bone substitute (pre‐hydrated collagenated cortico‐cancellous porcine bone) and free gingival graft; Tx...
